WINE not working

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
Hey, i'm using Fedora 7 and am having trouble getting WINE to work. Any time i load it up, it gives me a black screen until i right click somewhere. Then the black screen, named "WINE Gecko Installer" seems to "minimize." I can close it, but my program doesn't open.

Ok, i just got this thing in the "WINE Gecko installer" window that asked me if i wanted to download gecko or something. I hit "ok, install" and i guess it downloaded whatever it needed to... But i'm still getting this black screen. Any fixes?

What do you mean you are getting black screens? What are you trying to run using wine?

Just the whole screen turns black until i right click. Then the screen "minimizes" and shows me a black window that says "WINE Gecko Installer." I tried running Xfire with WINE, but it really doesn't matter what i try to run. If i just open WINE from the WINE folder in the Applications menu, same thing happens.

What window system are you running in and what drivers are you using? I have this issue if I am trying to run wine in gnome/beryl/compiz/xgl

I run gnome. Drivers - i have no freakin idea. I destroyed my xorg.conf file purposely so that it wouldn't load X upon boot so that i could install my nvidia driver file. The thing said it installed and automatically made its own xorg.conf file. So i reboot and it says that the xorg.conf file is corrupt, and then i delete it. Now i have no xorg.conf. Do i have a driver installed?

Ok that can explain the black screen, you kind of not want to delete xorg.conf but I do not know much about nvidia drivers, can someone else help him here on this?

You need an xorg - make one with the nvidia drivers. If it says its corrupt post it here

I don't know how to install the nvidia driver. When i try to, it says i need to not be running X, but idk how to not run X. This is why i purposely destroyed my X file, to stay in command prompt. Only then did it allow me to install the nvidia driver which failed to make a working xorg.conf file. I've been told to use ctrl + alt + F1, but then when i try to install nvidia it still says X needs to not be running.
